Chardonnay Reserve 2016

This wine is lush with aromas of sweet cream and hazelnut. The first sip adds flavors of citrus fruits, such as lemon, lime, orange, and tangerine. Extending the experience, these flavors linger on the palate and create a long finish.

Description

The Reinke Vineyard lies in Napa Valley’s Carneros district, one of the finest winegrowing regions in the world for cultivating thin-skinned Chardonnay grapes. The cooling breezes off the San Pablo Bay allow the grapes a longer hang time in which to develop flavor and intensity, without sacrificing acidity and true balance.  The Chardonnay grapes chosen to produce this reserve wine were barrel fermented, using several unique strains of yeast. Upon completing fermentation, the wine remained in barrels for an additional three months of sur lee aging, with approximately 80% going through Malolactic fermentation. Dry, lush, and balanced wines, such as this Chardonnay, are destined for food pairing.
